The One Thing Every Homeowner Needs To Know About a Recession

The One Thing Every Homeowner Needs To Know About a Recession | MyKCM

A recession does not equal a housing crisis. That’s the one thing that every homeowner today needs to know. Everywhere you look, experts are warning we could be heading toward a recession, and if true, an economic slowdown doesn’t mean homes will lose value.

The National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) defines a recession this way:

“A recession is a significant decline in economic activity spread across the economy, normally visible in production, employment, and other indicators. A recession begins when the economy reaches a peak of economic activity and ends when the economy reaches its trough. Between trough and peak, the economy is in an expansion.”

1. Fitchburg Farms, just off Highway 14 between Madison & Oregon, Fitchburg Farms is already bursting with color to add to your garden and front porch. My favorite spot for pre-filled flower pots for your front porch, driveway or deck. They have large and small pots already stocked and designed with the 'thrillers, spillers and fillers' that will bloom all summer long.

K & A Greenhouse, also in Fitchburg, is another great spot to get plants and trees for your outdoor garden.

If you’re in the market to buy a home this season, stick with it. Homebuyers face challenges in any market, and today’s is no exception.

Nearly three in four homeowners say they would still buy their current home if they had it to do [sic] all over again.”

That means the results – owning a home and the benefits that come with it – outweigh the effort needed to achieve their goal. If you’re a homebuyer, let that provide you with the confidence to know the work you’re putting in today will pay off for years to come.…

Today’s Home Price Appreciation Is Great News for Existing Homeowners

Today’s Home Price Appreciation Is Great News for Existing Homeowners | MyKCM

If you’re planning to sell your home this season, rising prices are great news for you. But it’s important to understand why prices are rising to begin with. One major factor is supply and demand.

In any industry, when there are more buyers for an item than there are of that item available, prices naturally rise. In those situations, buyers are willing to pay more to get the product or service they’re looking for when options are scarce. And that’s exactly what’s happening in the current real estate market.
